These Badass Tattooed Seniors We Captured Prove That You Shouldnt Worry About Your Tattoos When Youre Old

‘TattooAge. Never too old,’ is a photography project where we photographed 25 elderly people with tattoos in their living rooms. In these photographs, they show their tattoos and share the stories behind them: from a gift from a grandchild to the memory of a lost loved one. Some of the subjects got their first tattoo as late as 80.

In addition to the project, we also published a book with the same name. Besides photographs, it includes teaching material on tattoo culture which could be used in the academic community. It discusses the meaning behind tattoos, people’s experiences and life lessons, such as dealing with loss, aging etc. The exhibition ‘TattooAge. Never too old.’ began its tour across the Netherlands on September 20.

People often assume that tattoos are only done at a young age, so they ask older people whether their tattoos have faded or sagged. With this project, we not only want to tell the stories behind the tattoos but prove that age does not matter. It’s a fact – you are never too old for a tattoo!
